Title

Letter from Albin Kuhn to Norman V.A. Reeves and Howard Rawlings

Description

Dr. Kuhn wrote a ten-page response to the February 10, 1970 letter from the UMBC Caucus of Black Faculty and Staff, setting out his views and offering advice for pursuing solutions to the problems outlined by Reeves and Rawlings. Your discussions and your statement� refer to appropriate representation of blacks and, obviously, this is a problem which must receive immediate and continuing action.� He said that of the 2,286 students then attending UMBC, 74 students identified as African American. Up to that time UMBC did not recruit any students, instead relying on information supplied to high school guidance counselors and personal appearances by counselors at high school college nights. During the current year,� Kuhn stated, an attempt is being made to develop active recruitment of black students under the able leadership of a black official in administration.�
